Paris London Hong Kong is pleased to present a solo presentation of new works by Mariko Makino. Always inspired by nature, Makino creates work from seeing the parallels between processes in nature and the experiences we have that shape us as people. She began to study the shaping of mountains in how their peaks are created out of the accommodation of geological stress. In Highway Through The Ranges, we see Makino’s ability to match the forces of her materials with one another, guiding the wood, wire and neon together to a point of balanced polarity to expose the shape of their rupture and its continuing trajectory.
Mariko Makino (b. 1897, New York, NY), is a sculptor working out of New York City. Raised in Tokyo, Makino returned to New York to study at NYU, receiving her B.A. in 2010. Makino’s most recent shows include her second solo Canopy at Entrance, following her debut Rest Area and a presentation of sculptures in 2021 titled, Sky Lights, at Entrance.
